Yeah yeah yeah, I know everybody already told you to go visit Metelkova (check the article). And my lucky guess would be that they recommended one of the awesome clubs. Which I totally support. Maybe some of them mentioned the very cool graffiti art. Nice. But did they tell you about this unique gallery space that you enter without really entering it and works only at night time? If they did, kudos. If not, I’m glad I can be the one.
It consists of five windows on the first floor of Pešaki building behind which Metelkova is based and where young artists display their artworks. You can admire them from the street or climb up the central tower (be careful, if you have had any of Jalla Jalla’s delicious liquor) on which you will find binoculars that help you take a closer look. When the night falls, the windows light up and give it a memorable view. The idea came up in 2013, when Metelkova celebrated its 20 year anniversary, a “creative child” born by the artists that first exhibited and later formed the first committee to decide on the exhibitions to come.
If you’re doing a short stay I’d recommend you go visit Metelkova on a Friday evening and get a really good taste of its nightlife while gazing at exhibited art. And if you’re here for a while – just pop by every month when the display changes.
